Half-Baked wants to be a classic moronic movie, but it's just too stupid to achieve that goal.

The film, in spite of any plot, is one sketch after another, some of which fall flat, some of which fall flatter.

The filmmakers forgot to come up with more than one joke, and the one that they do have isn't very funny.

seems half-produced, with a grainy, unattractive look and bargain-basement special-effects that ruin some good ideas. Perhaps the filmmakers blew their budget on the slew of guest stars who pop up briefly...

As far as pot comedies go, it's got just enough laughs to warrant a visit.
